BIOGRAPHY

LONDON PLANE is a six-piece, female-fronted rock band based in New York City. Formed in 2016 after Cici James and David Mosey met through mutual collaborator Joe McGinty of the Psychedelic Furs, LONDON PLANE soon evolved to include a cadre of NYC veteran musicians - including a classically trained rhythm section - to build songs that are quick, punchy, yet elegant, and not long to linger. Each song is an adventure and a resolution, cinematic in scope, yet poppy with melodies at your fingertips. New York Howl, LONDON PLANE’S forthcoming album (May 2018) is speckled with bits of Bowie and his disciples – Echo and The Bunnymen, Peter Murphy, Siouxsie Sioux – while also nodding to the girl group sound of 1960’s Ronnie Spector, occasionally conjured by Cici’s vocals, but also decidedly modern. Juxtaposing the melodic blitz of the Ronnettes with the melancholic pathos of Dark Wave predecessors, adding splashes of Morricone's cinematic modern operas, LONDON PLANE redefines the landscape of New York City's underground indie-rock music scene (quite literally as the band calls Manhattan subterranean venue Berlin “home”). Rooted in the moment, the band gives no inward looks. Songs tear through their arrangements ("getting on with it" as described by RockNerd UK), easily shifting dynamics from quiet to quick, low to loud, ever brief and danceable. The band spent the last nine months in studio recording their forthcoming album -- ten tracks of dreamy, synth-infused rock with a backbeat you’d have a hard time not moving to.
